Oh, deer.
29 Oct 2016, night, road near Cincinnati Airport.

My wife driving.

Deer suddenly standing in the road. No time to react. We hit it.

Left window smashed. Glass all over inside of car. Outside rear view mirror knocked loose.

We called airport police. They take report. Deer dead.

Damage to car: $4500. Our deductible: $500. Ouch.

I swear the deer ran into the road and then stopped. Absolutely no way it could have been avoided. My wife says "What happened?" I reply "We hit a deer."

We are scheduled into the body shop 28 Nov. That's the soonest they can get to us. It's the busiest time of year for Ohio body shops: deer season.

RE: Oh, deer.
I knew a guy in Indiana that hit a horse with a 1970 something Monte Carlo at fairly high speed.
Totalled the car and banged him up some.
The horse didn't make it.

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.

RE: Oh, deer.
You got out alive and relatively unhurt; that's good. If a deer makes it through the windshield and isn't dead, it can kick you to death.

RE: Oh, deer.
I think the rut season is upon us? The deer lose their minds chasing mates. I've been seeing a lot of dead deer along the road lately

RE: Oh, deer.
It sucks that your car got mangled but at least you're both OK.

We have moose up here. If you hit one of those with a car they have better odds of surviving than you do.
